I am I am!!! Its so nice to find someone with the exact same date as me! That weekend is a long weekend here in the UK, so a Sunday fits well as people get a day either side for travel/wedding fun!
Have you been engaged long? What have you got done?

Me, Me!! Yay brides with the same day as ours. We’ve been engaged since May 2010 but we have been together for 10 years. We had a few weird looks about it being on a Sunday but I simply explained that the day doesn’t matter and the important people will be there. Lol that usually stops that conversation.

Ive actually done qute a bit, but weve been engaged since August 2009!

The biggest thing on my list to sort out is getting out my save the dates for the locals and getting the invitest stuffed and ready to send out in may/june.

Otherwise I have a ton of details to decide on and sort out- guestbook, some accessories, some decorations, favours etc and also some DIY projects to get on with- and actually DO, not just plan to do ๐Ÿ™‚

What big things have you guys got left? What colours/themes are you ladies doing? Ours is mostly navy, whte and green, with little bits of yellow- all very natural colours and textures etc.

We’ve done alot but we still have so much left to do… My save the dates are all put together and they just need to be addressed and mailed out. We have 2 bridesmaid newsletters sent out, photographer, videographer, decorator, bakery, tux picked, bridesmaid & hostess dress picked, part of the DIY flowers finished and most of the centerpieces. I am trying to get as much accomplished now so I can get started on this slideshow and the first dance.

Colors are turquouise, silver, with hints of yellow, black and white. My dress just came back in so I will be picking it up tomorrow. I’m so excited.

Yes lets!

Just curious- when are you all sending out invitations?

I sent out STD’s at the beginning of the month (feb). I was thinking May for invites, but is that too early? I just want RSVP’s back ASAP! ๐Ÿ˜›

Would love to see what your bridemaids are wearing- esp for all these navy weddings!

xoxo

@hesmywatermelon:

 

I was just about to post asking about invitations and RSVP due dates!!  We sent our Save the Dates at the beginning of January.  We have a lot of Out of Town guests, and with it being Sunday, we wanted to make sure everyone has plenty of time to figure out travel arrangements. 

For invites– I am toying with the 3-month mark (May 28th) or the first week in June.  The RSVP due date is confusing me!!  I don’t want to make it too early to have people go and forget, but the fiance keeps saying we need to make it earlier for those slow, lazy people.  He wants to put July 15th, I am saying July 20th.  I know it’s only a 5 day difference, but which do you think?  The earliest thing we need to have to our caterer/venue is 2 weeks prior, but we our doing a lot of DIY stuff, so want time to do favors, placecards, make sure we order the right number of tablecloths, etc.  We also are supposed to have an “estimate” to the caterer 30 days in advance, but don’t need the final count til 4 days out.  Confusing!

And– this is what my bridesmaids are wearing http://www.dessy.com/dresses/bridesmaid/2818/?color=midnight&colorid=47

We just got finished dropping the last of the Save the Dates in the mail at the end of Feb.

We said we were going to send out invitations by mid-June and give everyone until the 10th of August to get them back to us so we can finalize with the vendors. That and we have close friends we are getting married at the beginning of June and we are both in the wedding so things will get hectic.

@jem415 love the dress very cute.
